For many beef connoisseurs, a wagyu steak is the tenderest meat money can buy. They say it literally melts in the mouth.

How much of what makes wagyu beef so prized trickles down into a burger? Greg speaks to meat scientist, Martin Anderson, visits a Wagyu farm in Yorkshire, and sets up a blind taste test. All to find out if Wagyu burgers are the best thing between sliced bread. Do you have a suggestion of a ‘wonder-product’ making a bold claim that Greg can investigate next?
